Aged Care Solutions Expert Advisory Group - Australian College of Nursing

In response to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety Final Report, the Australian College of Nursing (ACN) established the Aged Care Solutions Expert Advisory Group (EAG). The EAG is made up of leading gerontological nursing specialists and academics from across Australia, who provide expert guidance and a robust evidence base for system-wide reform in aged care. In addition to the work of the EAG, members also work across the three sub-committees, devoted to areas most in need of reform: Workforce, the Aged Care Act, and Aged Care in the Community. Through the EAG, ACN demonstrates its commitment to ensuring nurses are front and centre in clinical governance and leadership, while providing the person-centred, culturally safe and professional care every older person deserves.
